New single “Same Train” OUT NOW!

Sue Ray returned to her hometown after being away for seventeen years and noticed a lot had changed. Same Train is Sue’s dedication to her hometown, the changes and growth within not only the town, but herself, and a reminder that no matter what side of the tracks you come from you can all hear the same train rolling on. A metaphor for sometimes the very thing that divides us, is often the very thing we all have in common.

New single OUT NOW


Sue Ray is proud to release her second single for 2021 “Demons Will Win“. Written, recorded and produced by Sue Ray, the song was mastered by Michael Flanders.

This is an intense sneak peek into the heart of a relationship, drowning in addiction and nostalgia, and praying for a ray of hope.

Reminiscent of artists such as Chris Stapleton and Lucinda Williams, Sue felt inspired to take an unedited look inside the destruction that can occur when the lines between passion, obsession and addiction get blurred. A dark, yet somehow hopeful song, seeped in sentimental memories and a promise for the future.

All The Lonely Ones – OFFICIAL VIDEO

All The Lonely Ones by Sue Ray Footage of Sue Ray directed, filmed and edited by Theresa Hall Photography Archive footage free for public use © Sue Ray 2021 Special thanks to Kosta Theodosis at The Met, and a very special thank you to Theresa Hall for your beautiful creative eye, talent and support. Sue Ray’s first single of 2021 “All The Lonely Ones”. Co-written with the incredible wordsmith and pop singer/songwriter Sean Sennett. A simple message seeping with an old country vibe, yet crafted with intricate and sweeping harmonies and instrumentation, it evokes haunting emotions reminiscent of the vibe of Springsteen’s Nebraska album. With this track, Sue and Sean felt inspired to look outside of the familiar country clichés, and explore the sentiment of living as a songwriter, the sacrifices, the joys, and the relentless uncontrollable drive to pursue a dream. Essentially songwriters writing for the songwriters, whilst also dedicating it to the audience with love and kindness. Stepping seamlessly into the role of sound engineer and producer, Sue is proud to release this beautiful track. It is a small taste of what is to come later in the year with her up-coming album due November 2021.
